Lid, sorry mate, heh heh.
don't know about you mate, but i'm really mardy when i lose a sale on a part that i've spent the whole week speccing and checking out periodically. kinda think of it as already purchased and waiting to be fitted. this happened to me on sunday just gone, a chance find of those 'eye ball' grafton canti hangers, sitting a +/- 15 for a whole week then pushed in a crafty 45 last mins, BIG red cross, went upwards to 90 then lost out in typing time, was i mad!! Anyone here wants to own up! cheera ti-fat-al.

Ahhh, the ebay time out phenomenon..on Trade Me in New Zealand, if you put a last second bid on an auction, the auction carries on for another 2 minutes, each bloody time too...I was going for 20 minutes with this other guy on an auction, I must have lost 2 kgs in sweat... :shock:

Great looking bikes by the way! :D

cheers kingroon, forgot that your always 'upside down' so to speak.
only since i've been lurking here and watching others, have i learn't, that sometimes, 'less is more' (i think i'll copyright that here). got plenty of the trick stuff over the years, fashion themes etc, but my bikes have always looked kinda like xmas trees with trinkets and flashing lights! Jez and Petes builds have always inspired me, so stripped of the numerous colours and gone with the one main theme. never really thought of PAULS back in the day, and then just stumbled across through the forum. the fat-ti build has three main brands. Ringle-hubs/stem/cage/seat clamp/wheel release, Syncros-seat post/bar/cranks and Pauls-levers/cantis/shifters. Two colours namely the black and blue. cheers al.
